Online Reading Challenges

This has been a challenging year for all of us. But as always, Mukwonago Community Library is committed to engaging our community in reading and other learning activities. While the demands made on all of us to observe social distancing guidelines may be a little inconvenient, they can’t stop MCL from doing what we love–offering you, our patrons, fun and rewarding experiences–even if we have to do it from a slight distance.

Using a service called Beanstack (more info below) you can register for, and participate in, reading-based programs and challenges from home or on the go. And you can earn special badges and prizes too!

On this page, you will find all of our online reading challenges– for children, teens, and adults.

If you are new to Beanstack, scroll down for a primer on registering and getting set up.
